Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Thank you so much for your well wishes on my hubbies health probs.
The outcome is that he did have another stroke back a month ago, and we weren't told till he visited the TIA Clinic on a follow up consultation last Tuesday he was then prescribed a fit medicine for the problem caused on the Saturday night when we spent so many hours at AE.
This caused him more symptoms just like he was having another stroke.
He currently can't use his right arm properly or his right leg and has to walk with a walking frame for small amounts as he gets very worn out.
So I won't be about much as I have look after him quite a lot.

In the meantime here is a Thank You card I made to say thank you to you all.
I won the stamps I used on a good blog friends posts where she often offers a card or stamps to her peeps that comment so if you are interested in visiting her, and I must say it is well worth a visit here is her blog. 

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The background is created DOInks.
Then I used Versafine Ink for the stamped design.
Butterflies from Wendy our Team Leader at MAWTT.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate each visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Oh Jenny, I hate to hear he is having so much trouble. This is a lovely card with such pretty colors but you are needed with hubby right now. Hopefully he will be able to have physical therapy to help him with using his arm and leg and be able to get around better. Maybe when the medicine wears off it will correct itself. You do what you have to do and we will be here when you get back. Hugs to you.

That really isn't good news Jenny, I do hope things improve for your hubby very soon. Look after yourself too, it's hard work caring for someone who is ill and you must be so worried.

A really pretty creation, the background papers are gorgeous and so is the stamp. A really super card.
So very sorry to hear the news about your Hubby. My Hubby had a stroke 9 years ago and while it did not affect him physically, it is only the past couple of months since he stopped having huge migraines, the strange thing was, he was fine through the day but only suffered from them during the night, he was up for hours and got very little sleep.
My Brother-in-Law also had a stroke about 6 years ago and he can hardly walk and has lost the use of his right hand and arm. He does very well though and is trying all sorts of things but also gets very tired.

So I know it must be very difficult for you and I wish you the strength to cope and hope that your Hubby quickly improves.

Take care of yourself too.

I'm glad that they got hubby all straightened out but so sad that it look so long that he had another stroke. I pray that he can get the use of his arm and leg back better. You just don't worry and take care of him. We will be here when you do post. And speaking of posts, this is a beautiful card! Loving the beautiful background you have made and those flowers are fabulous! Hugs, Brenda

Sorry I've not been around much lately but not enough hours in the day.
So sad to read about Tony. Hopefully your tender nursing will bring him back to good health.
